Film Screening, ‘Family is a Gift Campaign’ Launch at Teaching Night
Thursday, May 10, 2018

The Metro Manila Mission Core held its regular monthly Teaching Night on April 17, 2018. In a departure from the usual assembly in a church setting, the teaching night was held in four different cinemas around Metro Manila—SM North Edsa, SM Marikina, SM Mega Mall and SM Sucat. This was done in order to conduct two important activities: to allow brethren to view the block screening of Paul, Apostle of Christ and to launch CFC’s new evangelization campaign, Family is a Gift.


A photo wall was set up in the respective lobbies of the cinemas, with emcees encouraging couples and families to have their pictures taken and declare on socia media how their families are gifts from God. Prior to the screening, the assigned Sector Heads gave the Metro Manila Mission Core an appreciation of what Family is a Gift is, and introduced Household Without Walls as an evangelization tool that can help households be creative in inviting other couples into CFC.Family is a Gift as a campaign aims to strengthen the family through promoting family values and CFC lifestyle.


CFC’s core gift is to uphold the family, hence the campaign title. As CFC Chairman Melo Villaroman Jr. mentioned in his video exhortation shown before the movie, “The family is one of the most important blessings that we have, and since it is a gift, we are to value, nourish and protect it.” He added, “As we cherish our own families, we are to also share our mission in CFC to other families so that they may be led to experience Christ through CFC.”


“Household Without Walls” is a sub-campaign which will help build relationships with non-CFC couples and make them realize the blessing of belonging to a bigger family in CFC.


Referring to the “Family is a Gift” billboard along EDSA and the ads found on buses plying the same thoroughfare, Villaroman reminded the Mission Core, “Our billboards and bus ads can communicate, but cannot move to physically embrace lives. It is our lives and light that will be walking, loving billboards. That is why we need to take part in Family is a Gift by starting with our own families and household.”


The film was a very timely reminder on the CFC Theme from St. Paul’s letter to Timothy (Chapter 1:6, 4:1-5). The movie reminded the Mission Core of the life of St. Paul, who is at the center of mission and evangelization, and the life of early Christians fought the good fight of faith in order for the world to know about Jesus.
